Fantasy football start/sit, Week 11: What to with Stefon Diggs

Diggs has a daunting task ahead when the Rams visit Sunday. We look at the fantasy impact.

The Minnesota Vikings passing game had a field day in Week 10 against Washington. The Vikings No. 1 receiver, Stefon Diggs, enjoyed his best game since Week 4. He is also healthy for the first time since then. Diggs caught four passes for 78 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the win, doing most of his damage early. He had no trouble facing Washington’s stellar cover corner Josh Norman.

Diggs should feel good heading into a matchup with a formidable Los Angeles Rams defense. Diggs played well against two of the better outside cornerbacks in the league last week in Washington. The Rams have a top-10 pass defense that has the second-most interceptions and fourth-most sacks so far this season.

Fantasy impact: Diggs actually has an easier matchup against the Rams this week despite the fact that their defense is much better. The Rams have an incredible slot corner, Nickell Robey-Coleman, who could slow down the Vikings hottest receiver last week, Adam Thielen. Their outside corners are not as great, however. A lot of Diggs’ day will hinge on the play of QB Case Keenum. If Keenum plays relatively well, Diggs has the biggest upside of all the Vikings receivers this week.

Recommendation: Start
